The 22nd is definitely a better all around show. And don't get me wrong, the Eleven on the 22 is superlative, and remains one of my favorites.

I just love the Eleven from the 21st because of Jerry's spectacular heavy-metal style riffing somewhere around the 12-13 minute mark - never heard him play like that anywhere else. And I think they take the jam quite a bit further out; the last few minutes leading up to Lovelight are especially mind-boggling!
